“The challenge of change is forcing us to rethink our values and to rekindle our spirit of adventure.  It will take courage, resourcefulness and endurance to meet this challenge - the courage to try, to commit and to take more risks; the resourcefulness to be innovative and creative in finding new ways of doing old things; and the endurance to keep moving forward despite all the setbacks.”  

John Amatt is perhaps somewhat unusual amongst Adventure Speakers in that he did not reach the top of Everest on his celebrated expedition. Instead, he was a leader of a dedicated team that suffered four tragic deaths in two unpredictable accidents before placing six climbers on the peak. 

John’s mission in going to Everest was to place one of his team on top of the world’s highest mountain. In his own words … “It didn’t matter who reached the summit, because we believed that when one person stood on the highest point, the whole team had achieved the goal. I was totally fulfilled the day we reached the top and I would never go back to Everest, because my expectation as leader had been fully met”

John Amatt is a superb storyteller, who has delivered highly motivational presentations to some 1,800 audiences in 45 countries worldwide.  After a career of 25 years, he is one of the world’s most successful adventure speakers. An educator by training, he uses the lessons learned from his own life and death adventures in the world’s most remote places to articulate down-to-earth strategies for meeting the challenges of challenging times. 

John is the Founder of the world-renowned Banff Mountain Film Festival, Founder and President of One Step Beyond WorldWide, and has been called “The World’s Best Adventure Speaker”.

“Adventure isn’t hanging on a rope on the side of a mountain.  Adventure is an ATTITUDE that we must apply to the day-to-day obstacles of life  - facing new challenges, seizing new opportunities, testing our resources against the unknown and, in the process, discovering our own unique potential.”  - John Amatt
